Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

ARGH! The one time I forget to check Crimson Dark for over a week and it all comes out! I think the quick design on the Swallow Tails actually worked for you. A bit like the Star Wars movies where the X-Wings and Tie-Fighters of the later movies had more detail bits poking out while the earlier ship...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I think I've already written some meaningful messages back when you first announced the new job and that CD would be coming to a conclusion (as a web comic at least). I'm feeling lazy so go back and read them if needs be :P Seriously though. I'm looking forward to hearing about updates in regards to...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I think the recruitment drives of each nation are a good indication. We've heard recently that recruitment for the Cirins is off the scale and they only lack the ability to train them and the ships to give them. However the Darani have indicated that public support for the war has been wanning, so m...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

See, I think Vaegyr and Hal actually got on a bit. It almost seemed like Vaegyr earned a bit of his respect. It was more than a man to man thing 'cos Hal picked on Daniel all the time. But somehow, I think him and Vaegyr managed to get on... Maybe Vaegyr's diplomacy is just that good. Whatever the c...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Whats the bet the Niobids pull out all that gold trim and sell it... Probably just make the whole thing more homey. Put up a few posters, some old couches... I did see Daniel's piano in there so *shrug* I wonder how Novosi as a Patriot is dangerous... I guess she's probably the one who supported the...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The bomb pumped X-ray laser is possible but much less likely in an environment like Crimson Dark. They use rods ejected from the missile before the detonation of the nuke to catch the hard X-Rays and Gamma Rays it emits and use it to generate a high energy laser pulse. However this is highly ineffi...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Yeah the only way you could use a nuke "bomb" in space would be to surround it with some shell or projectiles that would do the actual damage when the nuke went off. As you point out however, there would be no stopping it from hitting friendlies or at least threatening them. The best you could hope ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I could easily see Kari taking the job. She's not the best of gunners and I'm not sure the Niobids were permitted to keep her fighter. This may be a nice wrap-up to the story which started with Kari but focused on the Niobids as a whole crew. She simply wishes to fly from memory so the chance to fly...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I don't want to imagine how much energy and how effecient the transfer of it to the velocity would have to be to get a projectile going that fast. Honestly I like to think plain and brutal. Build a huge, long cannon like the old style ship guns, get a nuke with a cannon ball on one end and shove it...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

*sigh* I know there's some more pages to come but I did almost shed a tear at the evident farewell to this amazing comic of David's I wonder if he'll make this chapter fell like the story is wrapped up or drop a revelation that leaves us yerning for the next part of the story. Certainly the mysterie...
